“Don’t be shocked and listen carefully.”
"What is it?”
“I am your father.”
Ju-Heon quietly picked Gungnir up.
He looked ready to shove it up Kwon Hyuk Soo's ass.
An anxious Kwon Hyuk Soo quickly shouted.
“Hold on! Put that down!”
“I told you it was war if you said some bullshit.”
Ju-Heon’s eyes flashed as if the war was starting right then. But Kwon Hyuk Soo seemed to have a lot he wanted to say.
“I told you to listen carefully without being shocked! Even if it was extremely shocking, you can’t react like that!”
‘Extremely shocking my ass!’
Ju-Heon threw Gungnir without any hesitation.
Gungnir flew toward Kwon Hyuk Soo. It looked more excited than ever before.
How could it not be when it had been used as a broom, duster, and other cleaning tools until now? Its butt was dancing with joy after finally being used how it was supposed to be used!
Die human! I'm going to kill you!
Gungnir aimed for Kwon Hyuk Soo’s heart.
it looked like an excited evil beast.
But Kwon Hyuk Soo deserved to be at the Four Emperors level. He used his superhuman reflexes to grab Gungnir.
His hand that was covered in a cast seemed to be in quite the pain. That was the start of the battle of strength between Kwon Hyuk Soo and Gungnir.
Kwon Hyuk Soo was holding back Gungnir that was right in front of his face as he looked at Ju-Heon.
“Hey Ju-Heon, can you hold on a minute? I know it is hard to believe, but it’s the truth. You are my son…”
“Really? You have quite the amazing son.”
Ju-Heon made a motion and Gungnir pointed downward instead.
Kwon Hyuk Soo started freaking out. Gungnir’s tip was pointing at a dangerous location.
Kwon Hyuk Soo foamed at the mouth but Ju-Heon just smiled brightly.
“Goodbye, father. I will enjoy taking your position, father.”
Kwon Hyuk Soo quickly shouted.
“It was a joke! A joke!”
“What’s wrong? I like it. That means that all of your wealth will become mine.”
Kwon Hyuk Soo despaired while looking at Ju-Heon's wicked smile. He would probably get ripped off more than benefit from this!
“Okay! I'm sorry! It was a joke! I'll never say it ever again!”
Ju-Heon nonchalantly called Gungnir back. Kwon Hyuk Soo, who had almost died, started to speak again.
“My goodness, I didn't know you would hate it that much!”
“I'm just telling you to cut the crap. I can still clearly remember my father’s face.”
Kwon Hyuk Soo peeked at Ju-Heon and slyly smiled.
“Then what about a hidden son……”
‘I should just kill this old bastard.’
Ju-Heon’s eyes flashed and the rope viciously squirmed as if to react to it. It was releasing a chaotic aura as if to prove it was a Heirloom.
Kwon Hyuk Soo could not read the mood as he continued to blab.
“You know how they say that Dominance and Affinity can be passed down through genetics? If you consider that your superb abilities are all things you have received from this great father of yours…”
It was at that moment.
The rope smacked Kwon Hyuk Soo on the mouth.
Are you going to keep up your bullshit? Are you?!
It looked like a regular rope but it hurt more than an iron club! He felt as if his teeth would all fall out.
Actually, he did lose quite a few teeth. He would have to pay over 10 million won to get implants for all the teeth he lost.
Ju-Heon started to speak at that moment.
“It looks like you want to pretend to be the father of the king to get some benefits. Don’t even think about using such a shitty method.”
Kwon Hyuk Soo just shut up. But Ju-Heon laughed as if his intentions were obvious.
This bastard had more loyalty than Chairman Kwon but they were the same when it came to using people to their advantage.
That was why it was obvious since Kwon Hyuk Soo agreed to work with him.
‘Well, I am using this bastard before he could use me though.’
“So cut the crap. What is the actual important information I need to know, you old bastard.”
“……Don’t you think I am too young to be called an old bastard? I'm still in my forties.”
Kwon Hyuk Soo seemed to give up after Ju-Heon picked up Gungnir again and started to speak.
“The Knights of the Round Table.”
“How much do you know about those bastards?”
“I know that they are members of the Executive Board who killed us in the past. I know they are motherfuckers with artifacts who separated people by class and spread diseases throughout the world. I know that you were one of them. That is why you are going to die when I take care of them as well. I also know that you won't only need implants for your front teeth if you called me over for such stupid info.”
Kwon Hyuk Soo, who had lost his front teeth because of the rope’s attack earlier, started sweating bullets at Ju-Heon's confident demeaning.
‘This vicious bastard doesn't show any openings.’
“Then do you know about this?”
“Your subordinate is one of the Knights of the Round Table.”
Ju-Heon peeked at him.
“Other than Yang Chen?”
Ju-Heon became interested after hearing that.
They were shitty but Ju-Heon was extremely curious about the Knights of the Round Table.
‘Those bastards are the ones who killed us.’
They also seemed to have a lot of unique artifacts.
But those bastards were like the Illuminati or the Freemasons who were frequently seen in conspiracy theories. They were like those secret organizations where there were a lot of rumors about them but nothing was really known.
The only thing he was sure about was that they were the chief executives of the current Era of Artifacts. But his subordinate was one of them?
That wasn’t all. Kwon Hyuk Soo said something that would make Ju-Heon's ears perk immediately.
“Now that I think about it, you already have three of the Majesty's Treasures, right?”
“Pandora’s Executive Board actually has one of the Majesty's Treasures. They have the Throne.”
Ju-Heon tapped on the cast on Kwon Hyuk Soo's arm as soon as he heard that.
“Old man, why did you take so long to tell me such good shit? It makes me want to kill you.”
“Ow, ow ow. But it seems like you like what I told you.”
“What about that Majesty’s Throne?”
Kwon Hyuk Soo smiled wickedly after seeing that Ju-Heon was interested.
“I can’t tell you any more for free.”
Ju-Heon didn't seem to have any plans on being savage as he nodded his head.
“Fine, I’ll let you use Sleipnir once.”
Unfortunately, Kwon Hyuk Soo was an extremely greedy man.
“Oh come on, you're too stingy. I'll only accept you handing Sleipnir to me.”
“Hahahaha! That is true.”
Ju-Heon smiled brightly.
But it only lasted for a moment.
“You better tell me before I tell the world about how your daughter is a homewrecker.”
Kwon Hyuk Soo instantly lowered his tail.
At Washington DC…. Inside this city with numerous global businesses that was known as the heart of the United States… Grave Company, one of the world’s top three artifact companies, had its headquarters here.
This skyscraper of a building had a large artifact shopping center, an Experience Hall, an Exhibition Hall, and other similar areas on the lower floors while the offices were on the higher floors.
Someone who stole everyone’s attention appeared in the lobby.
“H, hold on. Isn't that the Monarch of Plunder?”
People dropped their jaws as Ju-Heon nonchalantly walked through the lobby.
He caught their attention from the moment he confidently got off the Lamborghini, but he was giving off so much charisma in his sunglasses and suit.
He had a physique that looked great in a suit and had his hair slicked back in a style that wouldn't work for most people. He looked so cool that even men would say he was cool.
“Kya! Ju-Heon-nim! He’s so cool!”
Anybody who recognized him were screeching with joy.
As for Ju-Heon’s sister Joy who was coming back from lunch…she spurted out her coffee.
‘W, what is up with his look?’
It was quite shocking to see him like this since he usually just walked around in a sweatsuit.
Joy's reaction didn’t matter as Ju-Heon was gathering a crowd as if he was the Pied Piper.
“Hey! Sell the information about spotting Seo Ju-Heon! Hurry! It's quite the scoop!”
“We found our prey! The walking artifact warehouse has appeared!”
“Hold on. Why is Seo Ju-Heon here? Is he going to loot this place too?!”
“You dumbass! Why would he loot it?! Seo Ju-Heon is the Representative Director of this place!”
Even he would not loot his own company. But Ju-Heon never showed his face at the company that even the employees got confused from time to time. In fact, his appearance was, in some aspects, an ominous omen!
The company turned into chaos at his appearance.
“Eek, the Monarch of Plunder…I mean hello Director-nim!”
"What brings you here today, sir?!”
Ju-Heon just nonchalantly headed for the CEO's office.
Edward was inside with his eyes opened as wide as rabbit's eyes. Ju-Heon smiled as soon as he saw Edward.
“Old man. Come chat with me for a bit.”
Edward was currently shaking. It was because Ju-Heon was smiling brightly in front of him.
“Umm, Director Seo?”
Edward's gaze moved toward the item Ju-Heon was holding. Ju-Heon put his hand on Edward’s shoulder as if they were extremely close with each other.
"What’s wrong, old man? I heard that you left for a good job recently. Why don’t you give me a reference too?”
“Aww come on Director Seo… I mean, Director-nim. What do you mean leaving for a new job? Where else would I go but he……”
They heard a gunshot inside the meeting room. The employees gasped.
"What the hell was that?!”
They heard another gunshot.
Edward turned pale as a bullet brushed past his ear.
“Old man, your head is next.”
Edward instantly lowered his tail.
“I'm sorry sir! I’m sorry that I couldn't tell you in advance! But I only recently joined the Round Table! It hasn’t even been a week!”
The employees who were eavesdropping started to talk.
“Hold on. The Round Table? Isn't that Pandora’s Executive Board?”
“That is our company and our Director-nim’s enemies, so why would the CEO-nim join them?”
Edward urgently explained himself.
“Wait, Director-nim. Don't get the wrong idea! You need to go into the enemy’s lair to understand them. So……!”
“What? You didn’t go to get artifacts since I wouldn't give you a Heirloom? Isn't that totally an act of betrayal?”
Edward started coughing after hearing Ju-Heon’s implied meaning.
“What do you mean by betrayal…?!”
He wasn’t actually trying to keep it a secret from Ju-Heon or to betray him.
He was planning on giving it to Ju-Heon from the beginning.
He was just planning on getting it first to sell it to Ju-Heon for a good price or to make a deal!
He thought that it would be enough for Ju-Heon to give him a Heirloom.
“I barely got into the Round Table’s meeting!”
Ju-Heon just scoffed.
“Well, whatever. I looked into it and you didn’t embezzle any funds from the company. It also doesn’t look like you sold any of our information. But I'm surprised you got in. It’s not a place where just anybody can get into.”
Edward’s eyes flashed as if he had found his opening.
“Then should I tell you how I got into it? But it won't be for free…as for the payment…”
Ju-Heon sneered at him.
“Get lost. It’s all thanks to the evil god artifact.”
“The evil god artifact that used to be on my sister is on you now. You just used it.”
“W, what the hell?! You knew about it…”
“That’s why I didn't give you a Heirloom. You seemed to be fine using the substitute Heirloom.”
“What…?! Wait, that was the reason?!”
“Well, what you have isn't that good for an old man like you so feel free to let me know whenever you want to get rid of it. It’s going to cost you though.”
Edward seemed to be feeling truly wronged.
Oh well, none of that mattered right now.
He could get some information about the Knights of the Round Table that he didn’t have much information about.
‘Those bastards are my enemies and our enemies.’
The Era of Artifacts. They were the dark forces that allowed the monopolizers to run wild spreading tomb syndrome to people and making them die.
Those bastards were the reason numerous people died by artifacts and his team had been murdered by them as well.
Basically, they were the final group of enemies Ju-Heon had to take care of. There was no way he would let them be.
‘Those bastards are trying to artificially create the Majesty's Treasures.’
He didn't care about those fake artifacts. What he was interested in was…
“I heard that those bastards have the Majesty’s Throne. What do you know about it?”
Edward coughed again.
“Wow, you already know all of that? I guess I have no choice. That’s right. The Pandora System artifact is that Majesty’s Throne.”
Ju-Heon became interested after hearing that. He didn't trust everything that Kwon Hyuk Soo had told him, but this was what that bastard had said.
‘The Knights of the Round Table found the Majesty’s descendants and used them before killing them. They did all of that to use the throne.’
But apparently the Majesty’s descendants they had tracked down using DNA could not handle the Majesty's Throne.
‘But you might be able to control it. Whether in the past or now, hyung-nim and the others are probably scared about that.’
Edward sighed and continued to speak.
“But it would be difficult for me or you to swipe that out of there.”
"The knight guarding that thing is the final boss. His name is John Harper. That bastard uses a Christian artifact…”
Ju-Heon’s eyes opened wide. He then started to laugh out loud.
Maybe that was to be expected.
‘What the hell? Kwon Hyuk Soo, you despicable old man. Was my subordinate he was talking about being a part of the Knights of the Round Table that guy?’
That was the case. John Harper was one of Ju-Heon's former team members.
But he was someone who should have already been dead.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
Oooooo.... who is this John Harper?
